Doop! The Union project is fully mature, and they took years of frustrations out on Toronto FC. Andrew, David, Doyle and Calen give Jim Curtin and Philadelphia their due and wonder whether a double is in the cards. A double is possible because the Supporters’ Shield is back, as the decision not to award the trophy in 2020 was reversed by the Supporters’ Shield Foundation. Doyle is, of course, a Shield truther, and he says this proves the trophy means more than it ever has before. Calen, meanwhile, is back on the Carlos Vela hype train, even if LAFC’s star still looks a half step slow. Alicia Rodriguez (SBNation) also drops by to drop some Chicharito and Guillermo Barros Schelotto takes and explain what’s going on in San Jose and Sacramento. 8:00 – Huge win for the Union!

The best young players in MLS? Yeah, we’ve got the list. Only we’ve got some tweaks to make and snubs to spotlight as Andrew, David and Charlie debate MLS’s 22 Under 22 presented by Body Armor. Brenden Aaronson or Brian Rodriguez for No. 1? Who has a better career Ayo Akinola or Daryl Dike? Is Paxton Pomykal overrated? Which player would you bet on to have a solid career?

Life is fleeting, so live it and live it with people you love. Andrew, David and Calen send their love to Daryl Grove, Taylor Rockwell and the Total Soccer Show then turn to the Supporters’ Shield. Why is it going away? What does it mean to players and fans alike? In some other big news, Brenden Aaronson is officially headed to Red Bull Salzburg. The guys discuss the here and now as well as the long-term trickle down, and Andrew chats with Salzburg manager Jesse Marsch about what the Union homegrown brings to the Austrian champions, the perception of American players in Europe and a tough Champions League draw that will test players and manager alike. 3:45 – We’re thinking of you Daryl Grove   9:45 – What’s going on with the Supporters’ Shield?   19:36 – What does Brenden Aaronson’s transfer to Red Bull Salzburg mean now and long term?   27:43 – INTERVIEW: Jesse Marsch calls in from Salzburg to talk Aaronson, the American player and Champions League   1:04:13 – Orlando finally make the playoffs?

He’s got what it takes to get there, and Andrew and Charlie chat with the Philadelphia Union man about his present and future, a mentally challenging 2019, what voting and the upcoming election means to him and Brendan Aaronson’s rumored move to Red Bull Salzburg. Oh, and Caden Clark bagged another banger! How should the Red Bulls usher the 17-year-old along? Plus, with more games postponed because of COVID-19, how might that affect playoff qualification? Andrew explains how he’d keep things fair, using points per game and minimum games played, then Charlie goes in on the Galaxy after yet another poor performance. 3:04 – Is PPG a fair way to determine playoff teams?
